What about the mail application? Every 5 minutes it should only check  
for new messages if you're on your provider's own network, not when  
you are on holiday in Spain. Thus when your contract's unlimited data  
use applies you get immediate notification of new emails, yet you  
don't get stung for $100s in roaming charges.

I described how the Nokia N95 handles this in my post of 10 August  
2008 13:30:19 BST (search for "N95" in the subject) but perhaps not  
very clearly, as I hoped for more replies. Apparently I wasted too  
many paragraphs bitching about the Orange build of the Nokia  
software. But I would LOVE to know how this can be handled on an  
Openmoko device.
